Help with prices on parts

Hey, took my car into my local auto mechanic today, and realised they have new owners! Anyway, they are heaps better, I went in to get replacement washer pipes, and he gave me a full service minus the oil filter for free (I have a full service 2 weeks earlier at another place and I asked him how much stuff I need off the list, and how much he charges so he went and checked the car out himself)
And I must say the list was a lot smaller than what Centre Ford gave me! A lot of stuff on the Ford list was either crap, or not important.

So here is what he said I needed, can anyone let me know approx how much I should be looking at spending, as I dont wanna be screwed over

Front Wheel Bearings to be adjusted
Right hand rear Shock to be replaced
Brak master cylinder to be replaced
Rear Brake Pads replaced

Ill compare what he quotes me tomorrow with what you guys reckon.

After that - Im getting a damn CD player for the baby! lol

Re: Help with prices on parts

a lot depends on brands really. try searching the net for brands and prices. alls i can help you with is the brake pads. bendix ultimates (which seem pretty popular here) are around the $75 mark for a pair. they're a bit noisier than some but they last a while and are pretty standard. often whoever is looking after your car will have their own opinions on what to use and why and it can be hard to convince them otherwise.

i suggest u have a talk with the guy at the garage about all the details of what you're after and what he thinks is best.

sorry i couldn't help u more!

Re: Help with prices on parts

Taking my car in today.
They are getting me brake pads for $53 (just rear) and the brake master cylinder for $162.
Gotta add labour to that though, which is another $120.
Both parts are from repco, but I didnt get the brand names, although repco claim they are the best ones to suit my 1990 EA Falcon

Re: Help with prices on parts

i've found repco generally aren't the cheapest (in terms of labor) but they're reliable so unless u trust yourself with this stuff better to take it to someone who knows what they're doing.

The place I went to wasnt Repco, they just got their parts from Repco as the store was just near them.
